Just the first of many obstacles which face a Quechua child growing up in modern Peru...
At 7 years old, children in the Andes of Peru begin walking up to 8 hours daily to get to school...
And then one for 20 boys...
"It is so unusual to find a project where the emphasis is on the locals making a difference for themselves."
Meet My World 2016
TUESDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER 2016 19.00
UNION CHAPEL, LONDON, N1 2UN
Amantani and Andina present the next chapter of our Meet My World campaign. This year the children have come together with the talented director Cristina Patiño Sheen to deliver a very important message, ‘how to have fun without technology.’ Buy your tickets here!
Amantani's TEDx Talk
In this thought-provoking talk Fred Branson, co-founder of Amantani, invites you to re-imagine the relationship between the world’s so-called poor and those in a position to help. It’s time, he suggests, to move away from pity and assumptions of cultural superiority, towards reciprocal connections based on respect and mutual understanding.
Roxana & Heidy
Through our 'Plan de Vida' programme in the Boarding Houses, we encourage young people to make their own decisions about what defines success. When you meet with Roxana and Heidy, who are obviously living out their own version of success, it is incredibly heart-warming and just as exciting as Marleni’s university studies.
